  1. Tom Petty, RIP

    "You Don't Know How It Feels" was one of my favorite songs to reference an unfamiliar PA system. You can almost mix the song with a graphic EQ. Timeless music - never sounded dated to me.
  2. Possible Betso TCX-2+ issue?

    Thanks Jan for the info. I'm still curious regarding the ID of the receivers... Where can I enjoy this telemetry information? Via a TCX-2 in transmitter mode? Or using different model Betso products/software?
  3. Possible Betso TCX-2+ issue?

    The video isn't showcasing RF interference. It's showing how these units react if/when another TCX-2 transmitter (assigned to the same channel) comes within range (spoiler: nothing happens, until the first tx goes out of range - then the other takes over - but again this is a short unscientific test). These units can be named with 20 different ID numbers, but I'm not sure what the intended purpose is of that is. Perhaps there is software coming? Probably a question for Betso.
  4. Show me your bag

    Here's my latest bag... Singray JR, 633, SRb w/2x smqv, SRc w/2x LT, 2x smqv as cam hops to another SRb. Audioroot BDS. Ruggard lens pouch for lavs, tackle box for bits/concealments.
  5. How to wire a hairy talent

    ^ I remember the day I thought of this reverse over cover idea (not RM, but moleskin blanket/topstick) and yes it is a substantial trick to have in the bag.
  6. RF Interference and Teradek Bolts

    Mind if I wake this thread up? I've been working with a C300 outfitted with a Teradek Bolt 600 for the past 2 weeks and I'm getting very limited range and occasional RF hits with my Lectrosonics wireless (SMQV/LT with SRc&SRb) in BLK 21... Even standing 12 feet away in the same room. Scans looked clean / and I'm using a frequency coordinating app. Was anything ever rectified from Teradek as far as the 500MHz RF spill? Any tricks or ideas for me using blk 21 channels with a Bolt 600 nearby?
  7. Small USB Keyboard

    Hi Tom, Curious what firmware you're operating on with your 6-series recorders. SD fixed the following bug in their 1.04 firmware release (Jan 2015) USB port is now reset when the 633 detects an unresponsive keyboard. Sounds similar to your symptoms. That was something I encountered a while back myself. SD made further improvements to the USB Keyboard functionality in 2.11 (Feb 2016) Keyboard sequence involving Shift key would sometimes repeat the same character as if the key was being held down. Best, -Jim
  8. The Senator is ALIVE !!!

    When I discovered this forum (not that long ago - maybe 6 months back) it was the result of Googling a question I had about some equipment. Sure, I could've called the manufacturer, or read the F-n manual, but I decided to ask the guys here. Mike instantly private messaged me his response, which was basically what his pen reads + maybe an insult, I'm still not sure. I was confused about why he was responding (using the quote function and all, but) privately. I wrote him off as a lonely troll... and contacted the manufacturer. Turned out to be good advice, Mike. They knew the answer. Now that I've had some months to read through many old valuable threads here, I find the Senator to be very knowledgable and actually endearing (in an east coast kind of way). His relentless non-answers usually sum it up. He's been around the block and knows his stuff and in most cases... yeah, it depends. If the Senator ever made you feel dumb, that might have been a chance to learn something.
  9. Show me your bag

    Thanks for the info. Looks sleek. I'm using battery sleds for my 2 SR's. I wonder if they'd fit into the dashboard holes with sleds (without batteries of course), that way I could still use them for camera hops when needed.
  10. Show me your bag

    What is that dashboard for the SR's? DIY or available somewhere?
  11. CF card corruption?

    I have incurred a bad read on a (manufacturer approved) SD card. Turned out to be be the card reader. I reseated the card and transferred again and all was fine. Luckily I quickly scrubbed through the first rip and noticed it (loud blasts of static noise across all ISO's) before I delivered to client. Gave me quite a scare.
  12. Show me your bag

    Thanks. I got the 110cc. Makes sense
  13. Show me your bag

    Cool rig, Alex. Just curious, what model boom pole is that? Mine doesn't quite fit in my 1650.
  14. Google Calendar shared with wife and vice versa seems to work pretty well. I wish I could sync a Yahoo calendar into my Google calendar. The studio I work in uses Yahoo for their booking calendar, so I constantly have to keep an eye on both for availability/clashes.
  15. Stomach Rumblings

    This is what I was thinking too. But IBS isn't exactly curable? Sounds like water is the best answer.
